The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
The ACA was signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010 and aims to improve the quality and affordability of health insurance, decrease the uninsured rate by expanding public and private insurance coverage, and reduce the costs of healthcare for individuals.
The ACA, in conjunction with the Maryland Insurance Administration, provides all Maryland residents the ability to make simple apples-to-apples comparisons of healthcare plans and helps those individuals determine their eligibility for financial assistance (tax credits) to reduce the cost of monthly insurance.
